Perdue Farms delivers more than 1.5M pounds of protein in support of communities amid COVID-19 crisis

Salisbury-based Perdue Farms has delivered more than 1.5 million pounds of protein to food banks and hunger-relief efforts through its “Delivering Hope To Our Neighbors” hunger-relief initiative, exceeding its commitment to donate a minimum of 1 million pounds of protein to support communities where it conducts business in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Perdue has directed its donations to Feeding America-affiliated food banks serving its communities, including the Maryland Food Bank and others in California, Delaware, Georgia, Illinois,  Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. Perdue has also directed product donations to help frontline health care workers and first responders, and support community-based hunger-relief programs.

U.S. food banks continue to struggle with an ever-increasing demand for food by individuals and families trying to make ends meet during the COVID-19 crisis.
